Bethesda sent over a brief message saying that it has launched an online store. Now fans of Bethesda, id Software and affiliated studios can not only dump their hard-earned bucks into games like Skyrim and Dishonored, but on additional goodies like apparel, art, accessories and collectibles. Even old-school Quake fans can find a T-Shirt sporting the famous "nailed Q" logo.
Overall, the brands covered in this new store include Dishonored, The Elder Scrolls, The Elder Scrolls Online, Fallout, DOOM, Quake and Wolfenstein. Currently there are 46 items available to purchase, most of which pertain to Dishonored, The Elder Scrolls and Fallout. The Elder Scrolls Online, DOOM, Quake and Wolfenstein are mere T-Shirt offerings.
Fans of the Elder Scrolls have a total of 13 items to choose from, ranging from T-Shirts to hoodies to messenger bags to mugs. The most expensive item is the $300 Dragonborn "Standard Edition" statue which requires a $100 deposit. Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is inspired by official artwork, and is hand-finished and hand painted.
"The statue includes deluxe, full-color packaging, a hand numbered base, and a certificate of authenticity which allows you to purchase the same model number in future releases in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim collection," Bethesda states. There will only be 1,000 pieces offered worldwide.
In addition to offering the statue on Bethesda's online storefront, the company said the Standard Edition statue will be sold through GamingHeads.com. This third-party shop is also selling the Exclusive Edition for $329.99, limited to 500 pieces worldwide. It adds an alternate arm that holds a fireball spell that illuminates and pulses "like real fire". He measures approximately 16-inches tall, including the base.
In related news, GamingHeads is also opening up pre-orders for statues of Gordon Freeman, the popular protagonist from Valve Software's Half-Life series. He too will arrive in both Standard and Exclusive Editions, holding a crowbar in the former and a gun in the latter.
